Bartoli Takes Leaders Jersey In Burgos

Josй Ivбn Gutierrez of ibanesto.com won to-days stage of the Tour of Burgos, 172 kilometres run off in 4 hours 6 minutes 35 seconds. A big crash near the finish caused the bunch to splinter, a group of 16 including Bartoli kept out of danger with the next group at 16 seconds and some riders limping in over 15 minutes back. Leonardo Piepoli (BAN) was the big losser, going to hospital with collar bone problems. Gutierrez finished 5 second infront of the lead group to take the stage and Bartoli did enough to take the leaders jersey.

Tomorrows team time trial is of only 18 kilometres on flat roads and with ONCE off last 3 minutes behind Fassa Bortolo it should be interesting.
